International producer and music entrepreneur, DJ Steve Aoki is always on tour bringing his fans into his pumped up electronic dream world, with catchy beats, and his electrifying sound.
Aoki is currently at work on his sophomore album Neon Future, out late summer on Ultra Music, with a new residency launching in Ibiza this summer as well. The album boasts an all-star lineup including will.i.am, Snoop Dogg, and Mac Miller.
“Whenever I work with different artists I expand as a song writer, as a producer, and I always want to try and find the bridge between my world and there world," Aoki explains.
Known for his infamous stage antics from throwing cake at fans, spraying champagne bottles, and riding rafts on the dance floor, his shows are definitely one to remember.
“At my shows I want to be totally sharp, and focused on every single song, on every single thing that I do, and plus I have to, because I’m like caking someone, and have to run back and mix the next song…and I have so much fast quick reflex timing,” says Aoki.
For fans that want their Aoki fix before the release of Neon Future, check out the new track, Feedback, featuring Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Autoerotique.
